So to that end here is our simplified price list. If you donít see something you expect itís because itís probably included in the price!
Just to make it clear as well as simple, the following are NOT charged for.

60p each to a 4000 dpi tiff file and we throw in a set of jpegs at the same massive resolution. Saved to memory stick or hard drive. If you would like a beautifully designed slide show on DVD with transitions, music, pan and zooms then add another 10p per slide.
Just a few extras you may want to add on.
All cine film sound tracks cost 8p per foot extra, 16mm optical is included. Reel to Reel audio to MP3 audio format - £10 per reel (2 sides max, other sides charge as new reels) Duplicate DVDs cost £10 each and include the same beautifully designed case and DVD face print, in fact itís a duplicate so it looks the same! 500 GB external hard drives are £59.95 each 32 or 64 GB memory sticks are £20 each, you can of course supply your own drives and sticks if you have some going spare. Postage is £6 to £14 return generally unless you have a monster order. If you post your order to us we wonít charge you postage back! Collection is free of charge from anywhere in the UK mainland. Coffee and biscuits in our Studio are supplied free of charge!
Highlights cost £50 per DVD Enhanced menus cost £30 per DVD PhotoDVD added to the bonus section of your DVD adds £50 for each DVD Credits, £50 and they go on the last DVD in the set.
Note, when we say each DVD this doesnít mean duplicates, it means that if you have a lot of footage the project may be spread over multiple DVDs, each one is different, therefore so are the enhancements. A bit confusing but if you give us a ring weíll clear it up.
Weíve got a minimum charge of £40 for each film format. We also have a minimum length of 50 feet for transfer, sometimes reels with less footage than this can cause significant problems in the transfer process and often require leaders to be attached, it also prevents people from cutting their films into tiny strips only to find out later that they cannot be transferred
There are a few other prices but they donít often come up. To be sure if your order looks like itís going to cost more than you thought for some odd reason we will always contact you to discuss extra costs. If after that youíre not happy then weíll send it all back to you free of charge. So in the end you donít have to worry, thatís the last thing we want. We do this job to bring smiles to peopleís faces not make them worry!
So thatís the end of our simplified price list, let us know what you think, too simple? You want tables and graphs? Or is it just right? Weíd love to hear from you. Why not type it in that chat box over there on the right side of your screen. Thanks for reading this far.
